I'm a world traveling massage therapist, who recently found the love of her life and is happily living the family life in cozy Santa Barbara. 'Nuf said :)
Very nice place to camp! We spent 4 nights here while visiting Santa Barbara and the area. The deck is up the hill from the house with a great view, and just what we expected. Our hostess and her family were lovely, friendly, and had lots of great tips about restaurants, hikes, etc. We were able to use the house bathroom and shower. Comfortable location and set-up. We would return!
Kate, Alec, Fritzy and Grandma were so welcoming! They were sweet, laid-back and super ready to help with any of our needs. The outdoor space was huge and filled with beautiful flowers and numerous citrus trees. Their home and the entire neighborhood was so uniquely Santa Barbara, and incredibly lush and beautiful. We Would highly recommend booking this space if you're looking to visit SB, especially on a budget :)
We had a great time camping on Kate's deck! It was a really memorable experience, and we would definitely go back! It was great to be staying in this beautiful, park like setting, and then be able to drive into Santa Barbara in less than 10 minutes. We were first greeted by Kate's mom and children and they led us up to the deck, on the hill above their home, and we easily set up our tent there. After getting tips on great places to eat and see, we drove into town. When we returned later that night, we made our way back up the hill to the deck in the dark (which was easy since there's steps and a trail). It was really peaceful all night long and we could actually hear some coyotes and a wood pecker, which was fun. The deck is also surrounded by citrus trees and we had been told to go ahead and pick whatever we wanted. We only tried the oranges and they were soooooo good! Kate came up to the deck in the morning and she is so genuine, friendly and really interesting and gave us more ideas on places to see while we were in Santa Barbara. All in all it was a great experience!
Kate, Alec and baby were fantastic guests. They were a pleasure to talk with and they appreciated our home, animals and area. Also, they left our studio in perfect condition. I would highly recommend sharing your space with them.
